Among the four factors used by the Pag-ibig Fund to compute the amount of housing loan that its members may avail of is their monthly net disposable income.
Net disposable income is what’s left of your salary after deducting taxes, mandatory contributions to Pag-ibig and Social Security System (SSS) for the private sector or Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for the public sector, and loan or other payments (if applicable).
Since Pag-ibig decides on the lowest amount of loan that a member may take out based on either contribution, actual need, loan-to-collateral ratio, or capacity to pay (based on the net disposable income), it is the latter factor that is usually used as basis for most housing loan computations.
The table below is a listing of net incomes and their equivalent housing loan amounts pegged on the loan terms or the number of repayment years.
(For loans over 750,000 pesos, see the rest of the Pag-ibig income table.)
If, for example, you want to take out a housing loan of 500,000 pesos, you must have a net monthly income of about 25,000 pesos if your loan term or number of repayment years is five years. You may still avail of the same loan if your net monthly income is 10,000 pesos if you choose a 20-year loan term.
Now that you know the amount of housing loan you can take out, the next step is to determine your monthly amortization. How much do you need to pay Pag-ibig Fund on a monthly basis if you take out a 500,000-peso housing loan for 5, 10, 15, or 2o years.
The table below lists loan amounts and corresponding monthly payments based on loan terms (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 years).
For loans above 750,000 pesos, see continuation of amortization table.
